Ok, so setting a value on the bios will actually work as intended, even thou ew cant measure it? Or its a value that the board cannot handle anymore? Really confused...

Sideways2k @elmor are the voltages when using PBO level 2 with PBO set to "Enabled" safe? Can't see to find an answer. While playing lower demanding games it hovers around 1.4v with a -0.1v offset. The last two bios put the EDC to 255A which conflicts with your old post stating different numbers.

(I know you don't work there anymore, was just wondering if you knew from your experience, I hope your new endeavours are going well).

That means even if this voltage is internally generated, a monitoring software such HWiNFO should be able to read its real value.

Obviously, your issue about VDDP should be solved when you get a new board.

Perhaps the Probelt measure points (between the main ATX connector and the edge of the board) on your board would allow the check the VDDP voltage with a voltmeter, but I'm not sur this voltage is among the ones available here.

BTW, the smoothing fan speed doesn't work for so long that I lost almost any hope this feature comes back one day, but the ramping up and down of the fans is pretty annoying, especially when my PC is lightly loaded, almost idle.

I've opened one about a much more serious issue: my fans didn't work at all in PWM mode and on multiple sources (CPU + T_Sensor).
After many mails exchanges with the french support service of Asus, this issue was finally corrected with the bios 6808 or 6903 (can't remember which one precisely).

As the smoothing time issue is much less important, I didn't bothered Asus about it but it the 7003 still has it, I gonna open a ticket about it because it became too annoying since my PC got new light 24h/24 tasks.

That would be because you have a different board, I'm talking about the Extreme, not the Hero.

From Elmor's post on the ROG forum. "VDDP was initially fed externally in to the CPU, but was changed in AGESA 1.0.0.4 to be internally generated which is why there's no voltage at that input."
There is nothing to measure on the Probelt any more.

I found this post on the ROG forum by @elmor

So it seems to me, that the BIOS has just never been updated to point to the new/correct path to read the actual VDDP voltage.
I have no idea if manually setting the VDDP works as it should, changing it does not help stabilise my ram, but that could be a ram/cpu limitation.
